by Choppie Kotze
Delicious Lavender Jelly
Serves: 6
Prep time: 1 hour
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Ingredients:
½ cup fresh lavender flowers or 6 tablespoons dried
2 cups white dessert wine
2 – 4 tablespoons lavender sugar
2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
Juice of one orange
Instructions:
Put the lavender flowers into a glass or enamel pan and add the wine. Heat very gently until the temperature reaches 98⁰F. Remove from the heat. Strain wine into a bowl, pressing on flowers to extract all the flavor you can. Stir the sugar into the wine until dissolved. Check flavor and add more sugar if needed. Sprinkle gelatin into the orange juice and let soften, then warm gently until dissolved. Stir into the wine mixture and pour the jelly into a clear glass bowl or jar. Chill until set. Let jelly reach room temperature before serving.
